Welcome to The Spa Spy, a luxury spa hotel and resort recommendation site and lifestyle hub.
The Spa Spy was created by celebrity make up artist Lisa Stokes in 2012.
For more than a decade Lisa has beautified an array of stars from Kate Moss to Juliette Lewis, Daniel Craig to Justin Timberlake. Travelling the world working on fashion and beauty shoots, her combined knowledge and love of travel, beauty and well-being was the inspiration for The Spa Spy.

We’ve combined our knowledge of travel, wellbeing and beauty to bring you a wide range of elite handpicked escapes – from luxury UK or European spa breaks to Asian retreats, spa holidays and luxury spa days.
We are delighted to announce our new partnership with the boutique hotel specialists, Mr & Mrs Smith.
You can now seamlessly book many of the Spa Spy’s featured properties via their award-winning booking service – with best rates guaranteed, Smith extras and special spa offers.
